Majestic Autumn QP & Card Freebie

This month DSO has a "Card Challenge" hosted by Christine Smith. I thought this was a great idea and would be great to e-mail to all of my family in Texas for Thanksgiving. Plus, the posting bonus is amazing! Since I just finished up my "Majestic Autumn" kit I decided to use my own kit to create the card.

I loved it so much I decided to make a layout as well...

That is my beautiful daughter, Christina and my equally beautiful granddaughter, Jewel during our fall trip to Minnehaha Falls. Aren't they gorgeous?

Since I am certainly thankful for all of you who offer praise and encouragement on my designs, I thought I'd zip these up as an extra little goodie for you this month. The card is created as a 4" x 6" at 300 dpi for printing, but you can easily resize it for emailing. The QP is a standard 12" x 12" at 300 dpi.

Majestic Autumn Freebie

I spent the first 40 years of my life in Texas where we really don't have seasons, unless hot and hotter are considered seasons. So one of my favorite things about living in Minnesota is the amazing colors of autumn. We get to see beautiful sights like this...

This gorgeous place is Minnehaha Falls and one of my very favorite places in Minneapolis, especially during the changing of the leaves. I also love to go there in the winter. The falls freeze over and create the most amazing ice formations. Yes... rushing water does freeze when it is ten below zero. BRRRRRR!!! If you are ever in the Minneapolis area I strongly recommend a trip to the Minnehaha Falls, no matter what time of year.

So I was so excited when I saw the gorgeous colors for this months DSO Color Challenge hosted by Jen C Designs. Perfect for an autumn themed kit! Since I absolutely love autumn/fall I have loads of decorations around the house... gourds, nuts, leaves, and my cute little scarecrows. By the time I photographed and extracted everything... this kit was huge. There is no way I could put it all in the preview, so there are lots of surprises in there for you. Loads of goodies for scrapping those gorgeous fall photographs.

Hope you enjoy "Majestic Autumn".
